is not going to win the latino vote but the question now is how much is he going to lose it by. the president is now up 52 points amongst latino voters compared to six weeks ago, the support has dropped from 26 to 21%. back in august, romney said he was aiming for 38% of the hispanic vote. that was seven points more than what john mccain had in 2008. latinos are the largest minority group in the united states. 23.7 million are eligible to vote in this election. that is a record but turnout is traditionally lower for this minority than white or black voters overall. some churches are working to turn out the latino and african american vote bypassing out voter registration cards in battle ground states and asking people to promise to participate in caravans to get souls to the polls on election day. and since latinos are not likely to vote for mitt romney it is not stopping him from trying to win them over. he is going to honor the temporary work permits that allow young people to stay in the country. we're back in just a minute. what not to wear. >>and now to my point. tha
like it is a ploy to get the conservative latino vote? >> i think that it is a little bit of desperation. it is something you might have expected months earlier. what's shocked me kind of up until this point is romney was pushed so far to the right in the primary because he was really worried about santorum and all of them, perry and because he had this history as the governor of massachusetts and had a reputation as being more of a moderate, he -- especially on immigration really took a hard right position, to the right of rick perry, to the right of almost everyone else running and he never really tacked back. he's kind of stuck with that all the way through and i think finally he may be starting to realize well, we need something to offer. the problem is at this point a lot of the perceptions and a lot of the perceptions of romney really historically negative for an actual nominee of the party. have sunken in. so i don't know if you can really make a fundamental change in how people perceive you. but he's got
an important voice. >> latinos, business owners and newer residents ready to deliver colorado's crucial nine electoral votes, they could decide who takes the white house. >> reporter: the president will be back in colorado next week. this time in conservative territory in colorado springs. both campaigns working incredibly hard. like everywhere else in the country, it does seem that it will come down to organization and that ground game and who can get the vote out. >> colorado clearly critically important. >>> now to another increasingly important presidential battleground. we're talking about the commonwealth of virginia. john king spent some time there talking to people and poll sters. >> if you look at the map miguel is in colorado that's one of the red states the president turned blue. if you lo at the map you see all this red. how did obama win last time? he woven it from all of them right here in fast growing northern virginia. >> reporter: urgency in a place once reliably red. >> this is the republican party in virginia. >> mitt romney's path to the white house runs through virginia

voters and latino voters and youth voters that really made up a big part of his winning coalition four years ago, the question they have and that others have raised is, you know, will these groups be voting at the same levels as they did four years ago. >> and i think in that harvard poll there's a suggestion that 65% of romney supporters say they will go out. only 55% express strong enthusiasm for the president. >> and that can make a big difference if we have close races in some of these key states. >> dr. peterson, this is mitt romney in april telling students in ohio, young people, how they, themselves, can afford the american dream. take a listen. that was not mitt romney. that was, of course, someone else. >> i'm familiar with the quote though. >> we'll play it again. here it is. >> we've always encouraged young people take a shot, go for it. take a risk. get the education, borrow money if you have to from your parents, start a business. >> it's simple, you take out a loan from your parents and we're all millionaires. >> again, romney has become an expert at showing -- exposing f

% of african-americans, 16% of but when you look at the broader latinos, and 8% of white americans have no government- issued id. for the majority of americans it may seem natural and normal to have an identification, but the reality is there are a number of people who still do not have them. host: here is grace from ohio on the democrat's line. let me push a button. lasard, go ahead. caller: i'm from the old south. i come from before fdr. are you still there? host: yes, go ahead. caller: i am seeing this country going backwards. in the old south, i was born before fdr. my family was still in the complex clan. or their associates did. blacks did not vote. we would shoot them if they did. they knew their place as women knew their place. host: so the current order id? caller: me tell you about variety. are was born in la berber, tennessee. my birth certificate says creek, tennessee. there is no creek, tennessee and never has been i was born on my grandfather's farm with plenty of people around. i am one of those people that i finally got myself registered after moving to a new address and
that we've got the latino locked up, we've got the women locked up we can then throw latina women over whelmingly the domestic workers under the bus. jerry brown should not have vetoed that bill. it's democrats taking advantage of the fact that right now latinos and women don't feel they can go to the republican party. the sickness in the republican party on these issues is -- jerry brown should be ashamed of himself. >> don't you think that's a broader pattern in the democratic party? >> it could be. >> you have social issues a lot of places are trumping economic issues. even in new york andrew cuomo maybe signed the bill you're describing, but when cuomo wants to shore up his base, he does gaye marriage and when he wants to come to the marriage, this is something economic liberals should be concerned about that social liberalism is sort of the only liberalism that really matters. >> and i'm delighted that van brought jerry brown up. one, i think van is right. the democratic party does take advantage of its constituencies. i would argue it's taken advantage of latinos for a long time.
and said i've been voting my he whole life. i'm 88 and 90 years old, and now i can't vote. latino voters say i'm put under this requirement possibly that cannot be obtained. i cannot get my i.d. under these circumstances. is it harder to get people to support felons in some cases who have been convicted of obviously violent crimes? is that part of the roadblock at all or not? >> yeah. what helps here is for folks to really focus on just what a wide swath of people and month gets impacted. you know, we heard from charles dutton today on the tv show "the rock" back in the '90s who for 31 years after he got out of prison could not vote paying millions of dollars and talking about how he was subjected to taxation without representation even after he served his time. it helps folks to focus on the history. these laws were put in place for a reason. they were put in place as a wave right after the civil war. in states like virginia you talked about earlier it said quite plainly the person that made the argument for this law in 1901 made it very plain. he said because of this law, the darky wil
really have a huge turnout, latino voters, the numbers are there, but the enthusiasm, at least according to the polling, shows that the republicans have the advantage and that's why this race remains tight for romney. what's your take on this high-interest and enthusiasm, at least if the numbers are right, higher among republicans? >> i think at the beginning of the year, it was a real problem for democrat, i think the republicans led in high interest or enthusiasm by 10, 12%. now if that poll is correct it is down to 2%, which is statistically insignificant. i think since the convention, democratic interest has gone way up and republican interest has gone down slightly. so, i think it is not going to be much of a difference, 75% republicans, 73% democrats vote, the president wins in all those battleground states, democrats have a registration. the president wins, maybe even going away in those states. so i think the enthusiasm gap that exists in the beginning of the year has been pretty much narrowed, tamron. >> it is interesting. i want to talk about your home state you pennsylvania, o
that was the opportunity, and it takes us out of the stereotype as women or as gay voters or latino voters that we don't just care about one-sided issues, but the economy is at the core. so i kind of like that it shows that women are tuning in, paying attention, and we are concerned about issues that are much bigger than the stereotypical ones, but, yes, those would have helped too. >> to your point i think the president wasn't sure which mitt romney was going to show up at the debate. now he knows and knows how to prepare for him -- >> but that's no guarantee he's not going to change again for the next debate. >> that's fair. >>en owe the specific point of his performance, do you believe that mitt romney is a good improviser? one of the things we have picked up is that when he's on script, he can deliver an okay speech. but he's not dizzy gillespie. he can't improvise that well. this could be a strategy that goes down a bad path for him ultimately. it's all very well for his wife and sons to say be yourself. that could be problematic for mitt romney. >> i think that's exactly right. probably the bigg
reform. and if republicans think they need to win over latino voters, maybe a tiny shot of the dream act and that's it. >> one very big thing by doing nothing, the end of the bush tax cuts for the wealthy. you shouldn't underestimate how huge that is. talking about $5 trillion. you know that's going to come flowing into the federal government. he's going to have the upper hand just through an action. >> that won't happen because they'll restore all of the tax cuts for the middle income earners as soon as the bush tax cuts expire they'll revote in. it won't be 5 trillion. >> medicare, that's important. people need to understand voucherized medicare. >> talking about before, it is democratic pollsters, people like you mentioned james carville, stan greenberg, going around the country, talking to swing voters. swing voters are telling them it's a problem the president's not laying out a specific plan for the future. they're saying it over and over. >> the campaign reached a tipping point where the president has to offer a bold narrative policy and choice to win re-election, that was after t
elections, it could potentially help boost any sort of latino voter turnout for the president. at the same time, we are also potentially anticipating the president to react to the blistering comments from mitt romney earlier today when he spoke at vmi, about a 20-minute in length speech on foreign policy. will the president respond? we'll be listening, dip in and take some of that live as soon as we see the president in keen, california. but from president obama to his challenger, as i mentioned, today, laying out his foreign policy plans. the thing is, they actually don't sound dramatically different from that of president obama, except for one major detail. that's next.

not to be believed it's so big. this was a group that everyone had written up. latinos and women, mitt romney, mitt romney has no chance to get those. he closed 18 points in one debate. i'd be surprised. that's a huge leap. >> i never thought it was like 10 or 11 points, i don't think it's tied now either. i think it's maybe four or five. again, looking at all the polls. i think this may be an outlier on the women. i think you're right. >> there were a couple of other quick things in that poll. first of all, on the michigan, that's remarkable because a month ago, mitt romney, crossroads, everybody else pulled out of michigan. there were no ads running there. if he closed the gap like that, he did it on his own. also 78% of independents in that pew survey thought mitt romney won the debate. and then the enthusiasm for mitt romney, a campaign that a lot of people said, joe you know, and inside republican circles, this is a loser, we're moving on to 2016. now 67% of republicans say they're enthusiastic about their candidate, that's up 15 points from the last survey. >> mika, you brought this up this w
